Flux7 Named Inc 5000 DevOps ConsultingInc. magazine has announced its annual ranking of the fastest-growing companies in America and for the second year, Flux7 has been named to the prestigious list. We are truly honored to be named among some of the most iconic brands in the American economy, such as Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn, Zillow, and many others, who have been named to the list over time.

Flux7 ranked 1489th nationally with three-year revenue growth of 277% and was also ranked as the 39th fastest-growing IT Systems Development company, as well as 31st among all private companies in Austin. (A full list of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.) While this is a tremendous sign of Flux7’s continued growth and business momentum, it is also a recognition of the hard work of our team members, and the trusting relationships we have built with our customers.

Organizations partner with Flux7 to strategically plan IT roadmap adoption of DevOps value and to accelerate progress using highly in-demand skills and proven experience with cloud, containers, configuration management, and CICD. Flux7 customers gain long-term agility through the transfer of knowledge and IP during the planning and delivery process.

As our CEO, Aater Suleman, stated in a letter to our readers earlier this year, Flux7 was founded with a vision is to enable enterprises to experiment more, fail cheap, and measure results accurately. In pursuit of this goal and in service to our customers as an innovation lab, we continue to deepen our experience with new technologies such as Kubernetes and Terraform as well as advanced native cloud services.

Flux7 DevOps Case Study

For example, Flux7 DevOps consultants helped a global retailer standardize and accelerate its development efforts on AWS by building a DevOps Dashboard that would automatically apply the company’s various standards as its cloud infrastructure is deployed. Using the DevOps Dashboard allows its developers to focus on editing applications rather than worrying about infrastructure standard compliance. The result of this advanced DevOps automation is that developers are able to create higher quality code faster, which means that they can quickly experiment and get winning ideas to market faster.

Flux7 DevOps experts also helped an oil and gas leader who had over seven million physical documents in deep storage that it needed digitized. In the process, it also wanted to make it easy to archive documents moving forward, and ensure that its operators could easily search for and find data. Using Amazon Textract, S3, Lambda, and Kibana, we helped construct a solution that automated the digitization and archiving process while allowing end users to create smart search indexes to easily find key business data. And operators can build automated approval workflows to meet document archival rules for regulatory compliance.

A major wholesaler, knowing the extreme costs of infrastructure failure to its business, turned to Flux7 to help it refactor its eCommerce site to achieve the benefits of cloud DevOps. Our team architected and built a DevOps platform, ensuring that the applications were architected for high availability at all levels in order to meet the company’s aggressive SLA goals. The customer team was able to further its skills, learning through Flux7 knowledge transfer sessions how to enable agile and DevOps best practices and continue to accelerate the new AWS DevOps platform. At an estimated downtime cost of 6x the industry average, this firm couldn’t withstand the financial or reputational impact of a downtime event. As a result, the team is happy to report that it is meeting its zero downtime SLA objectives, enabling continuous system availability and customer satisfaction.

As Flux7 continues to expand its DevOps consulting services through further investment in repeatable processes and intellectual property to speed and scale customer results, companies like G6 Hospitality, Rent-A-Center and TechNipFMC continue to engage Flux7’s professional services and infrastructure modernization services.
